WR Draft Per Lions Wire


#1

#2

Millen just got a boner reading that headline.


#3

Sixth round: Jalen Hurd, Baylor.

He is really intriguing. If he is there in the 6th, I would take him.


#4

Looks to me like a deep draft in WRs, TEs, and RBs. Maybe not really good starters but guys that can play. The 3 spots I think they can’t wait for Day 3 are Edge, IOL, and CB. Obviously you don’t pass up a superior talent at another position, but at this point those are my draft priorities. And I also want an LB in there somewhere on Day 3.


#5

Im thinking OG has to be the top priority at this point. With the resources that Quinn has invested in the OL the past three years, i have to believe that will continue early on in the draft. Im starting to think that maybe an OT might really be in play at #8. Play em at guard for a year then move him out to RT after Wagner leaves.

That would be ballsy considering the defensive talent at the top of this years draft.


#6

Drafting is about long term. OL lasts a lot longer and takes more snaps per season (barring injury) than any DL. Suh was iron man but still 1000+ is more snaps than 850.

If OT is in play, it’s to upgrade Decker for cheaper (after this year).

If we can upgrade the OL, I’m not going to complain. (Note: do not take this as an endorsement of a 1st round TE. You can get great blocking TEs later in the draft and that’s the kind I like)


#7

I think that is what Bevell will be looking for as well.


#8

I mean, don’t get me wrong. It’s nice when they can catch a pass as a relief valve, but I’m really getting tired of the extra large, slow WR type TE that everyone touts as such a huge mismatch.

Nice red zone target, but then so was Joe Fauria…

I also remind the world that Antonio Gates was a UDFA.
